In case of 'Impatient Vivek', there isn't any redeeming factor whatsoever. Actors don't act, director doesn't direct, story writer doesn't write a story good enough and the technical crew doesn't bring in any finesse to the product. End result? A total disaster which even makes one forget that even the title of the film was totally indecipherable to begin with.
The film is about a young man named IV (Vivek Sudarshan) who is 'Idiot Vivek' for his dad, 'Impatient Vivek' for his friends and 'Adorable Vivek' for his mother. Ever so hasty in his decision making, he falls in love with Sayali Bhagat but when the girl doesn't respond and things don't go as per the plan, he kidnaps her. What follows from this point on is total commotion that makes one totally give up rather than spend time and energy on getting restless or impatient.
'Impatient Vivek' is everything that one expects from a film which comes out of nowhere and doesn't hold any credentials whatsoever from the production perspective. The leading lady walks into a police station in an outfit which would be deemed fit for a ramp, side heroes and heroines indulge into love making which by no means is connected to the story and other random scenes fill up rest of the remaining one and a half hours which are torturous by all means.
Neither Sayali's 'bhatakti aatma' act nor Vivek getting kicked in his private parts bring even a smile on the face. Also, the plot continues go off tangent every now and then with nothing coherent about it. Worse, songs come at just the wrong places in the film and since they aren't well tuned either, they hardly act as a relief.
Amongst actors, Vivek just doesn't get it right. Leaving aside the fact that he doesn't look the part of a leading man, he can't act. Period. His dialogue delivery is faulty as well while his body language is awkward. Even Sayali Bhagat, who showed promise in her debut outing 'The Train' which released three years back, seems to be totally lost and doesn't have much to do.
'Impatient Vivek' is one terrible, terrible and terrible film. It doesn't make you impatient by the way; it just makes you get engaged with other far more exciting activities, notably being clearing your mailbox in your cell phone. Really, in front of 'Impatient Vivek', director Rahat Kazmi's first film 'Dekh Re Dekh' looks like 'Peepli [Live]' (the common element there being Raghuveer Yadav).
Rating: 1/2 (half star)
